But Clinton nearly got an ambush makeover this weekend in Hawaii, when posing for a picture with Hong Kong's Chief Executive, Donald Tsang.
She was there, along with President and Michelle Obama, for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum -- and like President Obama, she eschewed a Hawaiian shirt in favor of a more buttoned-up look.
The former senator was minding her own business, looking lovely and composed, when suddenly a tiki torch-toting man dressed only in a loincloth sprinted right behind her. Just from our quick view, you can see the high slit on his "skirt" exposing a giant tattoo... we wonder what else Hillary glimpsed from her vantage point.
Everyone cracked up, of course, and turned to look (which gives us a great view of the quasi-scrunchie style Hillary's got going). According to the Daily Mail, no one is really sure what the guy was doing... although somewhat ought to tell him: if you're trying to sneak behind a group of dignitaries so no one sees you, best not to wear a loincloth and carry a stick of fire.
